26.2 Kirchhoff’s Rules Kirchhoff’s junction rule: The algebraic sum of the currents into any junction is zero. Kirchhoff’s loop rule: The algebraic sum of the potential differences in any loop, including those associated with emfs and those of resistive elements, must equal zero. © 2005 Pearson Education

When several resistors R1, R2, R3,… are connected in series, the equivalent resistance Req is the sum of the in a series connection. When several resistors are connected in parallel, the reciprocal of the equivalent resistance Req is the sum of the reciprocals of the individual resistances. All resistors in a parallel connection have the same potential difference between their terminals. (see Examples 26.1 and 26.2) © 2005 Pearson Education

Kirchhoff’s junction rule is based on conservation of charge. It states that the algebraic sum of the currents into any junction must be zero. Kirchhoff’s loop rule is based on conservation of energy and the conservative nature of electrostatic fields. It states that the algebraic sum of potential differences around any loop must be zero. Careful use of consistent sign rules is essential in applying Kirchhoff’s rules. (See Examples 26.3 through Example 26.7) © 2005 Pearson Education

In a d’ Arsonval galvanometer, the deflection is proportional to the current in the coil. For a larger current range, a shut resistor is added, so some of the current bypasses the meter coil. Such an instrument is called an ammeter. If the coil and any additional series resistance included obey Ohm’s law, the meter can also be calibrated to read potential difference or voltage. The instrument is then called a voltmeter. A good ammeter has very low resistance; a good voltmeter has very high resistance. © 2005 Pearson Education

When a capacitor is charged by a battery in series with a resistor, the current and capacitor charge are not constant. The charge approaches its final value asymptotically and the current approaches zero asymptotically. The charge and current in the circuit are given by Eqs. (26.12) and (26.13). After a time τ=RC, the charge has approached within 1/e of its final value. This time is called the time constant or relaxation time of the circuit. When the capacitor discharges, the charge and current are given as functions of time by Eqs. (26.16) and (26.17). The time constant is the same for charging and discharging. (See Examples 26.12 and 26.13) © 2005 Pearson Education

In household wiring systems, the various electrical devices are connected in parallel across the power line, which consists of a pair of conductors, one “hot” and the other “neutral.” An additional “ground” wire is included for safety. The maximum permissible current in a circuit is determined by the size of the wires and the maximum temperature they can tolerate. Protection against excessive current and the resulting fore hazard is provided by fuses or circuit breakers. (See Example 26.14) © 2005 Pearson Education
